Another smart play came from Heather Higgins’ Independent Women’s Voice, which continues to punch above its weight class. It targeted undecided voters in Kentucky with targeted messaging on Obamacare. GOP insiders also credit her with keeping the donor class’s eye on the race as winnable even after the RGA temporarily pulled out of the race — so much so that donor pressure appears to have had a hand in persuading the RGA to go back in with their final closing blitz.
“Congratulations to Matt Bevin, who ran a smart, disciplined campaign that drew sharp distinctions on ObamaCare – which turned out to be one of the key issues of the day. Despite being outspent by a wide margin, Bevin’s focus on repealing the state’s Medicaid expansion under ObamaCare – combined with the fact that Bevin was the only candidate to sign the IWV ObamaCare Repeal Pledge – made clear to Kentucky voters the choice they faced.
Higgins: “The millions of Americans and their families who have been adversely affected by the ironically named “Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act” deserve a better healthcare system, and, certainly deserve to have their voices heard.”

We Americans don’t agree on much these days. We’re split on Obamacare, taxes, foreign policy and a hundred other things. We’re even split on whether a politician should be the next President.
Paul Ryan, or whoever becomes Speaker, would be wise to treat revoking Congress’ special exemption from ObamaCare as an opportunity to improve Congress’ standing with the American people,” said IWV President and CEO Heather R. Higgins. “Americans want to see Congress and their staff live under the law as written, and experience the law the same as others who have lost their insurance and been required to go on the exchanges. At a minimum, it would lead to better policymaking as Congress would feel the real world effect of the laws.”

House leadership elections are now set for Oct. 8. How do we know a new Speaker will be any different than the previous one?
Americans who voted for Republicans in 2014 and handed them a Congressional majority had high expectations. Maybe too high, says outgoing House Speaker (and fellow Republican) John Boehner.
